The Message for Greensboro?
In my world of message management, we are charged with taking very complex issues and boiling them down into something that makes an impact, is memorable, and drives one to action. We as SBC bloggers have had the privilege of being curled up with the issues we blog about for a while -- most of you a lot longer than I.
We know what we believe about the issues that affect our convention. I am not convinced that the broad cross-section of Baptist messengers will fully understand what we are doing and why we are doing it.
When I read over the
I don't think we are there yet.
I'm not sure how we boil the message down. I have some ideas.
Without a clearly defined message, I'm afraid that current the SBC power structure that opposes openness, transparency and widening the scope of cooperation will successfully demagogue our efforts as the "new SBC liberalism" and, by extension, us as "liberals." If some of our well-meaning SBC messengers hear us defined in those terms, many will take great pleasure in quashing our efforts.
(The good news is that we are getting a fair treatment in the Baptist (p)ress by being refered to as concerned conservatives in print.)
